Bingo At Home (circa 1958) (first half of 60-minute episode)


Published 1958


A partial episode of a local (New York City) television series called "Bingo at Home". This series aired on station WABD-TV. The station produced many fine TV series in the 1950s, but this is probably one of the their weakest efforts. Hosted by Monty Hall, and with original commercials. Sound quality is extremely poor with very heavy hiss, and at times it is impossible to hear what anyone is saying.


Run time 31 minutes 46 seconds
Audio/Visual sound, black and white

And found out that "Bingo at Home" aired daily from February 17 through December 12, 1958, ending due to its primary sponsors (General Foods and Standard Brands) pulling out during the final few weeks of the run.

Aside from comments indicating this is a Monday, the biggest indicator of some airdate is the mailing address for those who want to play but either have an unlisted number or don't have a phone line yet -- they have to send a request to WABD, which changed its call letters to WNEW on September 7, 1958. As such, this is between February 24 and September 1.

As for the audio quality, it's definitely better than some stuff I've heard over the years. :)
